Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas – Ecuadoran journalist once insulted publicly by president speaks about the press’ relationship with the government (VIDEO)
A reporter in Ecuador discusses in this video her experiences covering Ecuador President Rafael Correa:
Fundamedios has reported 13 lawsuits against journalists and the media in Ecuador, including a $40 million fine and three-year prison sentence journalists from El Universo are facing over the president’s accusations of libel.
It is within this chilling context of hostility against the media that Sandra Ochoa, reporter for El Universo, spoke with the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas about the press’ relationship with Correa in Ecuador. See below a video of her interview in Spanish.
